Yesterday I had the honor of attending Tori Brackbill’s home going celebration… (Some of you may remember previous sessions I had done with this family… you can view one of those sessions here.)
Y’all I gotta be honest. It was a bittersweet event for me…
There is a devastation you feel in your heart when someone so young passes away. But with Tori, along side that devastation is PEACE and HOPE.
PEACE because she is in a much better place where she is able to run and play and once again open up those big, beautiful eyes… She is no longer trapped in a body that was failing her. And HOPE because ALL who follow Jesus have the hope of heaven!
I titled this blog post “Celebration” because yesterday was truly a CELEBRATION of Tori’s life. And what a party it was!!! There were party favors with Tori’s two favorite foods: dum dum lollipops and cheetos, photos and slideshow from all of her Bucket List adventures, balloons, and a stage full of her giraffe collection.
I’m so thankful that I had the opportunity to meet sweet Tori. Not only has her short life made such a HUGE impact on my life, but on THOUSANDS of others as well.
We are truly all #TEAM TORI.
